So today I discovered the Ironman Challenge. Basically the rules are this...
Level from 1-85 using the rules below.
Only White or Grey gear. No Heirlooms of any kind.
No transfer of gear, items, or money from any other character (yours or others).
No gear enhancements, including gems, enchanting, and reforging. Class abilities are allowed (eg. Rogue poisons, Shaman imbues).
No specialization, talent points, or glyphs. No pet talent points.
No professions or secondary skills, except for First Aid.
No potions, flasks, or elixirs except for required quest items.
No food buffs or other external buffs (including buffs from items and other players).
No groups or assistance from other characters, even if not grouped.
No dungeons, raids, battlegrounds, or arenas.
No guilds, except for level 1 guilds created specifically for the Ironman Challenge.
No addons which assist in combat and/or leveling (eg. leveling guides, Ovale).
THE BIG ONE: No deaths. Character death for any reason disqualifies the character
The following are allowed:
All class abilities, racials, and personal buffs.
All mounts, bags, and non-combat pets.
All quests, including holiday events and dailies.

After seeing this I couldn't resist. So I looked at the leaderboard to see which realm had the most players on eu. Joined Earthen Ring and started.
Currently I am level 17 and Its now almost 6am so I'm going to bed... More tomorrow, feels good to be actually doing something in the game that I can actually be bothered to put effort into.
Current standings are here http://wowironman.com/ I am Cubedout a Hunter from Earthen Ring. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/earthen-ring/Cubedout/advanced
My personal goal is 30, and anything after that is a bonus to be honest. I don't consider myself amazing at this game, but if I don't hit 30 Ill not be happy.
